Ganja White Night has yet to disappoint with their past tours, and this one is their most impressive yet. Prior to showing up to the event, I knew I was in for something special but I don’t believe anyone in Avant Gardner was prepared for what we witnessed. This was arguably NYC’s best Dubstep event of 2019 and I’m confident that plenty of local wooks would agree.
Before getting to the headlining wobble masters, the supporting acts opened up this long night of madness with Subdocta heating things up. I became a longtime fan after discovering his productions in tracklists of Bassnectar‘s live sets. Subdocta was even more impressive than I could’ve imagined, delivering a true old school Dubstep set, unlike anything I’d ever heard before. To my surprise, he sprinkled in some Drum ‘n’ Bass which complemented the set quite well.
Next up is Jantsen, most commonly known for collaborations with other well-known Dubstep acts. He delivered a headlining-worthy set and I swear I felt the building rock. He took the crowd on a beautiful journey through bone-rattling Bass and mind-blowing mashups. Jantsen’s beautiful moment came to an end all too soon, lasting only for about 45 minutes. Nevertheless, it was one of my favorite sets of 2019 and I am looking forward to seeing him again soon.
Boogie T has been at the top of the Dubstep game in most recent years. He does this by displaying a unique combination of dark synths and colorful (and comical) visuals. He’s essentially a master of encouraging people to be silly while hearing such heavy-hitting bass. It’s always a treat to witness him live and seems to set a playful atmosphere for the night.
Last but not least we were graced by the Belgian legends themselves… Ganja White Night. I thought the prior sets would be pretty hard to top, but this thought was soon to be proven as pure ignorance. After all, this was my first time seeing them live and I didn’t have a clear idea of what to expect. Words cant quite explain what happened in those two hours or so.
Within minutes of their set starting, it was clear who was the true bosses of the night were. Much credit is due to the artist My Name Is Ebo, for the impressive arsenal of visuals displayed before our faces. Pair the art along with the insane new album material from Ganja White Night and you have yourself possibly one of the best events in dubstep history. Songs from The One album were strategically placed throughout the set, in between some of their well-known bangers. This served an even more shocking effect to the whole set, as attendees literally could not predict what was to come next. The bass duo has quickly moved into my top three dubstep acts without question, and I would even go to this exact tour in the near future, just to relive it again.
The One tour was nothing short of a major success in NYC. The event is likely to leave a long-lasting impact on anyone in attendance. If Ganja White Night is coming to a place near you, there is no doubt that you should grab your ticket immediately. This is not something to miss if you’re a fan of bass, and its likely just the kind of escape your soul is longing for. Grab your tickets for the remaining dates here.
